English abstract:
This paper presents an effort to implement a novel predicitve control approach toward the utilization of passive cooling in an existing office building in Vienna, Austria. Three almost identical office rooms in this builidng were selected for the implementation. Two offices were used for simulation-based predicitve control of window and blind operation, whereas the third office was used as a reference. In two yeard of testing a genetic algorithm was developed to generate control options (alternative positions of windows, shades, etc.). Numeric simulation is used to simulate and benchmark the best performing scenario. The paper describes the approach in detail and presents the results so far.
